Familiar with Erma Bombeck? She could sure offer up great humor, especially some of her takes on parenthood. Many times she managed to be funny and profound at the same time. She also was a prolific writer. Some of her titles include: If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?; The Grass is Always Green Over the Septic Tank; When You Look Like Your Passport Photo, It's Time to Go Home; and At Wit's End.
Samples of her quips:
"Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died."--Erma Bombeck
"All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them."--Erma Bombeck
"Housework, if you do it right, will kill you."--Erma Bombeck
"I have a theory about the human mind. A brain is a lot like a computer. It will only take so many facts, and then it will go on overload and blow up." --Erma Bombeck
Hope you enjoy the holiday. What's your favorite picnic food or Fourth of July tradition? Do you have a favorite Erma Bombeck quip or story?
